She's a Keeper

Would you double park in the middle of the street for her?  I'm not ashamed to say I did just that.  I spotted her on the lawn just as I was driving up to a yard sale on Saturday.  Cars were parked up and down both sides of the street and I just couldn't risk her being carried away in the time it took me to find a legal parking spot.

After a quick chat with her owner, I learned that she's a younger gal estimated to be in her mid 30's.

I'm thinking her blond legs and neck will look much better with a little color, and of course she needs some jewelry and something to wear.  Her asking price was much less than my mental estimate, so with these two cooper pots the deal was sealed.

Love the patina.

Oh no, not a broken neck.
I picked her up by the waist after our photo shoot and this is where my foot stopped her neck.  (I couldn't resist one more picture).  A few more inches and it would have rolled into the deep end of the pool.  Fortunately, a little glue will take care of this minor problem.
